2018 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 89

Cedar and tobacco lead off the perfume before you get to the spicy, cranberry, red currants and herbs. Bright, crisp, chewy, medium-bodied, classic, and crunchy, give this at least 5 or more years in the cellar before pulling a cork. The wine blends 45% Cabernet sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. 89 Points

2016 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 88

Quite bright, this medium/full bodied, fresh, sharp, crisp, cassis and cranberry filled wine is made for lovers of older, classically styled Bordeaux. The wine leans to the cedar, tobacco leaf and piquant red fruit oriented side of the style range. 88 Points

At its medium/full bodied core, you find, juicy, black and red fruits, tobacco, and cherries with a note of espresso bean. Give this a few more years to develop and it will be even better. This is probably the best wine here since 1989! 90 Points

Light, bright and tight, with crispness to the cassis and tartness in the cranberry, the wine is lean and with more freshness than fruit. 84 Points

Forward, soft and fresh, this wine has a bright center of black cherry and cassis, which is complicated by hints of dark, bitter chocolate and a red fruit–filled finish. 87-89 Pts

2009 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 88

Spice, herbs, earth and tart cherry scents lead to a tight, tannic wine, with drying sensations in the red fruit, dominated finish. Perhaps time will soften the tannins. 88 Points

2008 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 87

Medium bodied, soft textured and serving up a lot of freshness in its melange of dark, red fruits, this can easily age for a few more years, allowing all its components to come further together as its a bit tight and simple at the moment. 87 Points

2006 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 85

Firm, stoic, austere, old-school, crunchy red berry-packed wine with a strong touch of green peppery herbs and tobacco leaf on the nose and palate. 85 Points

2005 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 88

Tannic, firm, classically styled, with an austere, herb or leaf tinged personality is dominated by crisp red berries and spice. This clearly needs another 5 or more years to come around. 88 Points

Dark in color, but light in flavor. This medium bodied, red fruit dominated, bright, earthy, tannic wine is still tight at the moment. Give it at least another 5-7 years. 87 Points

2003 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 89

Easy drinking charmer, without any of the excess you often find in this vintage. The wine is round, accessible and with a soft, red berry, earth and tobacco character. This is drinking at what is probably its peak today. 89 Points

2000 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 90

With a nose packed with earth, black plums, tobacco and cassis, this powerful, tannic, deep wine could easily pass for a Classified Growth.If you're going to open it now, leave it in the decanter for an hour or more. Else, give it a few more years to allow the firm tannins to soften. As the 1989 is still going strong, this should continue to age for a long time. 90 Points

1989 Château Chasse-Spleen  (Moulis en Médoc) 92

At age 20, this wine nonetheless tasted several years younger tan that. Filled with layers of deep, ripe black fruit, herbs, earth, and tobacco scents, this full bodied wine has come together nicely. Still young, this wine will offer pleasure for at least another 20 more years. The wine will fool a lot of people in a blind tasting. 92 Points
